I just bought this one new from Amazon, and I have absolutely no noise issues, sounds pristine! I'm not sure if they addressed the below issues, but mine sounds great!

Great album, terrible pressing. At least with my copy. A7 has tons of distortion and clipping. Also, super noisy throughout, even after a vigorous spin clean. United Nashville strikes again.
